6:33 am
hard fought up until the end. we do have undercover video of this alleged gift card incident where people were handing out gift cards in exchange for votes. this video was sent to us by a fenty supporter. there were original claims that perhaps the gray campaign had been using this as a tax take to buy those, those claims coming from some inside the fenty campaign. the "washington post" is claiming that cora masters barry is claiming responsibility saying she was just trying to get out the vote. another instance that has included a bit of mud slinging on both sides and bitter right up until the end with the incumbent mayor, mayor fenty becoming the underdog. we saw this pickup truck pull up here and it is loaded with gray signs. i can't quite imagine where the campaign worker is going to find space to put those signs as just about every square inch of real estate in this part of
6:34 am
town is consumed by a sign for fenty, gray or a d.c. council member running for office. this is expected to be quite a business bizy day tomorrow as we will finally learn would will win this mayoral contest. back to you. in other primary election news, outgoing prince george's county executive jackson son has made awe public endorsement of sheriff michael jackson to replace him. johnson's endorsement of jackson came on the same day that the "washington post" endorsed jackson's main opponent. three others are running for the position which johnson is vacating because of term limits. the polls in d.c. and maryland open at 7:00 a.m. and will be open until 8:00 tomorrow night. members of the tea party come together in a push for change. marchers gathered in d.c. over the weekend and have walked from the white house to the capitol. the focus was to reduce big government and they want a conservative approach to
6:35 am
running the country in the future. one man who feels very passionate about the direction of the country explained why he came out for the rally. >> my grandkids, my kids. >> for the first time in my life, i have been afraid of my government. that is the reason. i think if we don't stand up for it, it is not going to get any better. >> many who participated in sunday appear event say they hope the passion they saw will also find its way into the voting booth come november. new this morning, a homicide investigation in fairfax county. it happened in the 6800 block of field master drive. police say somebody broke into a man's house and shot and killed him. police believe he was targeted. they say there is no danger to the public. a pretty scary scene at the annual adams morgan day festival. a dogfight set off a deadly

police shooting. an officer shot and killed a pit bull who list a attacked and killed a poodle. witnesses say the two dogs were just passing by each other. bystanders tried on separate the two dog but an officer eventually stepped in and shot the dog. two calvert county police officers have their homes shot at over the weekend and now police have a suspect in custody this morning. charges are pending we understand. they have been looking into two shootings in the chesapeake ranch estates area of lusby on friday and saturday. bullets were found in the homes of two different police officers. police think the shootings could be connected to recent arrests of more than a dozen gang members. jail guards alerted detectives about threats made against deputies and state troopers. a big season opener for the redskins who toppled dallas last night. dave ross is here with more on the game last night.
6:37 am
so the bottom line redskins 1-0 on the season, dallas, 0-1. great numbers. >> great numbers. this is the exactly the start the washington redskins had to have. they put up a lot of i guess you would say anticipating for the game. all week long, he they held rallies, if you hate dallas, you need to honk your hon. they did a lot of things to get the fan base riled up for this one. 90,000 last night at next fedex field. let's take a look at what i thought was the key play before the end of the first half. the redskins were up 3-0. why the cowboys are calling this play, i don't know. a little flip pass and deangelo hall, that is great hustle. that is a guy not giving up on i play. ripping the ball out of his hands and taking it back and nice somber salt at the end for style point as well to put the skins up 10-0 which ultimately led to them winning this game. if you take another look being there is no need. this what is gets coaches fired in the nfl and wade phillips
6:38 am
could be looking for new work which would be uglier, the dave ross somersault or the somersault? >> an to tony romo. >> even he has to know to tax a knee. when you do something like that, bad things are going to happen. nothing good to come out of that play except for the washington redskins. if you want to ache a look at the last play of the game, have you ever seen a half to end that way and game to end like this. you see brian orakpo coming up the field. tony gets around there, find roy williams. cowboys win 14-13 and they rein the heart out of the redskins. what we didn't see there is what we'll see here.
6:39 am
if you watch closely on the play, lower half the scene, baron is filling in at right tackle for the cowboys. he put a choke hold on brian orakpo. people said you can't call holing to end the game you absolutely can and you must. that is what this was. take one closer look. what you thought was interesting about what he dids he went to the other side. excuse me. trent william had a great game in his rookie game, his first game ever. head to move ware to the other side. >> that is another great sign for the redskins. my props go out to the fans who were there almost 1 hours after the parking lots opened and were still in the seats. >> don haven't mcnabb being his debut very much hyped. numbers weren't outstanding but a lot of people talked about
6:40 am
the change in philosophy and the change in the play. >> i don't know that they win this game last year with jason campbell. there is something intangible that he brings and that is something that they haven't had. no turnovers, steve. that is the biggest much. grade fade. should have been his first touch downpass. couldn't hold onto that one. that is what he gives you, leadership and wins. >> we like that. thank you. >> see you next hour. new developments in the aftermath of that massive gas explosion. the deadly flames lit up the sky and destroyed dozens of homes. now, the investigate is under way. we'll get a full report on that? >> what did you have for dinner last night. how about 47 burritos. meet the competitive eater who scarfed them down in record time. c

6:49 am
weather guy question ever. why are there just as many dallas cowboy fans as there are washington redskin fans in the d.c. area? the dallas cowboys do not have any cx to this area and there was no mass migration of people from dallas to d.c. that i am aware of. i have lived here since 1971 and it has always been this way. why? why? why? it is really annoying that. is carter's opinion. >> can i take a stab at this. >> first let me just say. on the beltway about 5:00, 6:00, there were a lot of cars with cowboy fans. they had cowboy flags flying and the banners all over the place. amazing. >> i would be interested to see going back to 19716789 can't go back that far -- >> oh, sure you can. >> abiocor there are as many cowboys fans as redskins fans. >> and they are loud and
6:50 am
boisterous. >> they are incredibly annoying. we don't like to sit close to them. >> here is the deal. this is what i have heard from people who i know who are dallas fans in some cases. i think that period where the redskins were not winning super bowls, dallas was the team. they were america's team. people wantedded to latch onto them. >> can i just follow that up quickly? >> i agree with steve. i was here in the '70s. there were a lot of cowboy fans. i looked back at the records during the '70s. the cowboys were 136-38. they had many winning years. and they became the heart throbs of america. >> has why the yankees as you say, the most championships in baseball, by far the biggest fan base in baseball and probably in all sports. cowboys the same deal. and in the 70s, when you had the cowboys and steelers, baseball was the national pass time for the long he have time. it was when the cowboys and steelers took crpt are stage in
6:51 am
the '70s that all of mark was captivated. i remember at a very young age, i said dad, who do we root for. said you never root for the steelers. you root for anybody playing the steelers. cowboys happened to be playing the steelers. >> should we get julie's twisted logic on this? >> no, we don't want to talk to julie. >> you don't want follow a loser. >> other cities, lots of cowboy fans? >> i think so. you go across country for the cowboys. you will find them everywhere. you will find them in arizona. you will find them in new york, everywhere. >> we keep cutting them out of the shot. >> julie, your turn to weigh in on the losers. >> i agree with what you are saying. we live some d.c. we are a melting pot for everybody. so there is a lot of -- >> not a lot of rams fans here. >> jaguar fans aren't going
6:52 am
